If it Drives is the seventh book in the Market Garden series by L. A. Witt and Aleksandor Voinov. While this book is part of series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I found this book well written. This story grabs you from the first page, draws you in, and does not let go until the very end. The main and secondary characters were realistic and engaging. Overall, this is a fabulous story.
Callum, or Cal as he is called is James Harcourt’s limo driver. Cal drives James all around town no matter where he wants to go. Cal dropped out of Law School to become a writer, and being a limo driver leaves him the ability to write while he is waiting for James. He also lives on the grounds of the estate that James lives so he is always nearby.
James Harcourt is a wealth banker who goes to Market Garden, an elite gay brothel, once a week and picks up a guy. James does this for over a year. James is a submissive with a need to be dominated. James is one of the more difficult types of subs. At times it is hard to understand him. It might be because usually the Dom is in the position to understand what the sub needs where Callum is not.
The chemistry between Cal and James is blistering. I find it amazing that both waited over a year before attempting something together. I admire Cal because once he realized what James needed he went out to try and become what he needed. While I don’t think Cal will ever be a true Dom he does very well dominating James when he needs him too.
If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it's cheaper to rent it.
After driving James Harcourt, his wealthy banker boss, around for a year and a half, Cal isn’t surprised by much anymore. Not even James’s regular trips to Market Garden, London’s most elite gay brothel.
But when James leaves the Garden alone one night and turns to Cal instead, Cal’s floored. After crushing on his boss for ages, it’s his wet dream come true . . . until the awkward morning after. Cal still has a job to do, but he wants to offer more. Yet James doesn’t take him up on it; he keeps Cal at arm’s length and continues his chauffeured jaunts to Market Garden.
As Cal learns what James needs from the rentboys, he tries to fill that need himself. But there’s more to James’s penchant for rentboys than Cal realises, and it may be one role that Cal can’t fill without overstepping his duty.
